#### Math problem-solving classes this year will have the following four elements with a balanced set of assignments.

**IQ Boosters**: Kids are not born with fixed IQ levels. We believe IQ can be developed by solving the correct set of problems that challenge them appropriately. Now, we have a fantastic collection of IQ boosters to help students have fun with non-routine problems.**Weekly Thinking Problems**: Students will get a problem with a few extension problems every week to challenge their thinking. We have selected a lovely set of problems for the entire course. We will also encourage students to discuss this with their family and friends. The objective will be to have students ready to discuss their thoughts. We want students to think beyond boundaries. If your family starts to discuss these problems at the dinner table occasionally then we know that we are on the right track.**Model Drawing**: We believe good problem solvers require good visualization. To help students develop good visualization, we will focus on Model Drawing for solving math problems. These proven techniques are based on Singapore Math. We will work with students to master 6 step model drawing process. It’s a powerful concept if appropriately practiced.**Contest Training**: We will continue to teach curriculum concepts using contest problems. This was the main focus in the previous years. However, we are extending this focus by adding three new elements mentioned above. If we can make students think and visualize, contest problems will automatically become easier to solve.
